Weekend in the Pool and some FAQ

Baby Pool Floats | Unicorn | Flamingo | Swimsuit | Palms to Pines
We are just coming down off of a fun weekend in St. George. I’m getting back to real life at home (aka catching up on laundry and emails) and reading through a bunch of your questions from my Instagram stories this past week. I thought it worked well last week to answer them quickly in a blog post, so here I go again!!! Where are the girls’ swim suits and hats from? All of the…

Taking the Babies to Humboldt

Visiting Grandma | Palms to Pines
The babies had their first flight, and were able to meet my Grandma for the first time! I can’t even explain how much this trip meant to me. I’m posting it on here for no reason other than to document it in some way. And also to remind all of us how special and important these moments are, because it’s easy to forget. It wasn’t easy getting there – flights are so expensive that we…

A Letter From an Instagram Husband (Re: the Anti-Bloggers)

There’s an interesting conversation going on in the blogger/influencer community. Many people are blaming these influencers for fueling a social media epidemic that is undermining our self worth. I wanted to speak up against what I feel is a misguided narrative toward hard working women and men in the blogging industry. There is some truth to the dialogue people are having about the negative influence social media has on our society. People imply these bloggers…

Things I Want to Remember about Blake (on his 34th birthday)

Today is Blake’s birthday – he’s 34! Today he said, “Man, I’m old.” My response was, “No, you’re just right.” And I honestly feel like all of the sudden everything is just right. Instead of writing something sappy and vague, I decided to share some things I wrote down while we were still in the hospital. They were just some things I wanted to remember about Blake in that time, and I’m glad I wrote…

RiSE Festival 2016 | Mojave Desert

We just had such a special weekend together, and I’m left with a feeling I get a lot.  It’s a mixture of feeling so grateful for Blake and this ache of missing the rest of our family who are so far away.  Does that ever go away?  I don’t think so. We were lucky to get to go to the RiSE Festival for the third time.  It’s always hard to find the words to explain…

Daytime Pajama Jam – Wearing Rachel Pally

Rachel-Pally-Pajama Dress on Jen Hawkins
So to be clear, this is a dress – not pajamas.  But it might be the most comfortable thing I’ve ever worn ;).  Usually I get home at night and can’t wait to change into comfy clothes, but last night I wore this (dress by Rachel Pally) until the very last second I had to change for bed… Printed Maxi Dress | Platform Wedges | Bar Necklace | Tan Leather Tote | Sunglasses Happy hump day, and may…

Easy Shirt Dress

If I ever have something to go to and I don’t know how to dress, I wear a shirt-dress! ;).  I feel like it can be super casual if it needs to be (and usually so comfy) or you can dress it up with booties and belt it if you need to look a little nicer.  I’m talking church, work, running around town, and then out to dinner.  I love love love this shirt dress…

Shoes on a Monday

“When I feel bad I like to treat myself. Clothes never look any good… food just makes me fatter… shoes always fit.”  -In Her Shoes I love that part in In Her Shoes, because at some point in our lives we can all relate…shoes always fit.  Which makes them a better investment than clothes and food! 😉 I’ve obviously got shoes on the brain today…probably because it’s Monday and buying shoes sounds like it will…
